Some progress 

Some progress

Well, I went and did it.

Yesterday after attending 8:30 Mass I called about the RCIA class, and got the information. Unfortuately, it meets Tuesday's at seven, so I am not sure how long I will be able to go, but I am already planning on going this tuesday. Keep me in your prayers, as this is a real step for me.

On another issue, I had a discussion with The Husband about my seeking God in Catholicism, and it didn't go very well. At least neither one of us yelled or got really upset by it, though I really felt like it. However, I felt something beyond me restraining me from saying too much or from getting out of my chair. The Husband is still really hostile toward anything related to Roman Catholicism, to the point of forbidding me to have a Rosary in the house, let alone praying it. He does not know I have a bit of holy water in the house as well.

Despite The Husband's misgivings, I continue my readings, both on my handheld (a Godsend, ironically, from my Husband) and from the library. I am reading not only things about the Catholic Church in specific but alos getting into the history of Christianity and reading tranlated writings of early Christians, to see if the Church's claims are true, and I find that I am more and more convinced that the direction I am heading in is right. I also am reading a bit of stuff still about monastery tradition and what the modern monastery looks like. I still think that waiting for a while is a good idea, and so far it has proven to be the best thing for me to do in my life. I waited before getting married, and that went pretty well, and I waited before getting baptized, approaching twice before the thrid time which led to my baptism. I have been investigating Catholicism since somewhere around the end of May so by the end of August I will have passed through 3 months of waiting and learning, thus ready to make a preliminary vow, aka attend RCIA meetings/maybe go to first confession. I hope to become more regular in praying, though, before that happens.

Anyway, if you read this and feel like it, please comment!
Till next time.
